FULL details of what is possible under the new level three coronavirus restrictions have been published online.
Today (Monday) the whole of Scotland moved into level three.
They are broadly similar to what Shetland has already been under over the last few months, but travel has fully reopened.
The number of guests allowed to attend weddings and funerals has now increased to 50.
Alcohol can now also be served by hospitality venues outdoors. Fjara in Lerwick and the Mid Brae Inn are reopening their beer gardens this week.
Lerwick Brewery, meanwhile, says it is restarting tours from Monday 3 May.
Brewer Jonny Sandison said: “We’ve been working hard to ensure we can conduct the tours safely and have put a number of safety measures in place such as limiting the number of people per tour, introducing a one-way system within the premises and reorganising our tables to allow for social distancing.”
The full details of level three restrictions can be found on the Scottish Government website.
